Is Panasonic Getting Out of the Plasma TV Business?

Say it ain't so! On the off chance that you don't already have a case of the Mondays, here's a bit of sad news: The web is buzzing with rumors that Panasonic will soon drop plasma from its TV lineup.

According to Japan's The Nikkei newspaper (via Reuters via Electronic House), Panasonic is planning to cut its losses and permanently pull out of the plasma market. That's not to say that you should run out and start hoarding the company's plasma TVs like they're Twinkies. Panasonic is planning to make this move a gradual one.

Panasonic will kick off a three-year plan during the next fiscal year. The Nikkei is reporting Panasonic's plans to shut down plasma TV panel production at its main plant in Amagaskai in fiscal year 2014. Reuters also says that the company is already cleaning house a bit, selling off assets and real estate.

Plasma has long been a favorite of video fans. If you're one of those looking for a little hope, a Panasonic spokesperson did tell Reuters that no final decisions have been made yet.

Panasonic introduced the ZT60 plasma at CES back in January.

It wouldn't be a total surprise, though. Just one year ago, Panasonic announced record losses and plans to pull back on the company's total number of flat panels. That said, the company seemed dedicated to the category for the long haul, announcing 16 new plasma models for the year, in sizes ranging from 42 to 65 inches.

In 2012, Panasonic was just one of three companies (total!) still cranking out plasma TV models.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
